IB Ql AD-CITY TIMES Sunday. Nov. t, 1977 Davenport-Bettendorf, Iowa Buffs Continued Prom Page IB get the recognition of a Michigan or a Oklahoma." Green was the one bright spot in Iowa State's offense. He scored from the one with five minutes left in the third quarter and finished with 82 yards rushing. Other Cyclone ball carriers accounted for a mere 14 yards. In fact, Iowa State didn't get a first down until 1:21 was remaining in the first half. Meantime, Colorado was building a 12-0 lead. "We didn't give Dexter enough room to run," Bruce said. "He had to fight for every yard." IT WASN'T a day quarterback Terry Rubley, another Davenporter, will want to remember. He wound up losing three yards on the ground although he completed U of 21 passes for 146 yards. Rubley fumbled twice and had one pass picked off. Colorado couldn't cash any of the mistakes into points, but Terry's second bobble came in the final minutes at mid-field. "No doubt about it," Terry said as he cradled a bag of ice on his elbow, "mistakes really hurt us. Colorado's defense surprised me. It's big and tough." While Iowa State was struggling in the opening 30 minutes, Pete Dadiotis put six points on the board for the Buffaloes kicking 28 and 26-yard field goals. Nothing seemed to go right for the Cyclones. Rick Blabolil, one of the conference's best punters, shanked two of his eight tries. One kick traveled only four yards and a second-quarter effort went 20 yards. Colorado got possession on Iowa State's 43 and after wingback Robert La-Garde punched out a yard, Kozlowski busted loose for his 42-yard touchdown. With 2:59 to go before intermission, the Buffs attempted a two-point pass play, but Pete Cyphers' pitch was too long. Cyph-?rs came on in relief of Jeff Knapple, who sustained a shoulder injury. KNAPPLE WAS taken to an Ames hospital for , x-rays at halftime. Cyphers was forced to leave the .game early in the fourth 'period with an ankle injury. ; Colorado coac h Bill Mal-lory had to dip down to freshman Larry Lillo to 'complete the Buffs' second league victory in five .games. They have lost two and tied one. "Lillo ran the scout team all week," Mallory said. "The kid did a job. . .all of the kids really did a job. I've never gone through three quarterbacks in my 20 years of coaching." Of course, by the time freshman Lillo stepped in, Colorado didn't need any more scoring. Iowa State's only production was helped out by two pass interference penalties. Safety Tom Tesone intercepted a Rubley toss at the seven, but was whistled for pushing. Two plays later, rover Jayhawks Triumph LAWRENCE, Kan.

Oklahoma State 28 Nov. 12 Games Colorado at Oklahomo lowa State at Kansos State Kansas at Nebroska Oklahomo Stale ot Missouri Mark Haynes was called for the same infraction and the Cyclones had the ball on the one. Green took care of the rest. "IT'S HARD to say what happened to us today," Green said: "I guess the offense didn'i execute. Colorado definitely has a good defense, though." Rubley ranks the Buff defenders right alongside Oklahoma the only other Big Eight team to beat Iowa State. "All week long we talked about Colorado being down mentally because they had lost two games in a row," he said. ."It didn't happen this way." Then, too, how were the Cyclones to know that Kozlowski was going to have such a big day let alone play. "I knew I was going to help the team in some way, even if I had to kick," Kozlowski said. Mike suffered the lung injury in the opener against Kent State and aggravated it in the Oklahoma State game. "If it were up to me, Mike wouldn't be playing football," said his mother. "But my husband says he has determination, and we can't take that away." Desire must be a Kozlowski characteristic, for Mike Sr. has decided on a new career after spending 18 years as a civil engineer. "I'll be graduating from Palmer in next June," he said. MIKE JR. will have to make another trip to Iowa and celebrate again. "I feel bad that Iowa State had to lose today," said mother Marilyn. "Iowa really is a great place to grow just like the sign says." Iowa State's only notice able injury was to linebacker Tom Boskey, who didn't play in the second half because of a wounded knee. "He strained the knee," said Cyclone trainer Frank Randall. While waiting for a report on Boskey, Bruce has already began to think about next Saturday. "We're down. . .I'd be disappointed if we weren't," he said. "We'll be back next week. Our character will show. Our kids don't quit."

(L'PI) Quarterback Thomas Lott ran 80 yards for a touchdown Saturday, and halfbacks Elvis Peacock and David Overstreet each scored two touchdowns to lead third-ranked Oklahoma to a 61-28 rout over Oklahoma State. Tight end Victor Hicks scored on a 10-yard pass from relief quarterback Reserve Lifts Huskers COLUMBIA, Mo. (UPI) Rick Berns resurrected himself from the shadow of teammate I.M. Hipp Saturday to rush for 81 yards and two touchdowns in lifting 10th-rankcd Nebraska to a 21-10 victory over Missouri. Berns suffered a hip pointer in the third game of the season and was replaced by Hipp, who has gone on to rush for more than 1,000 yards. Berns never made it back into the starting lineup until Hipp had to leave the Missouri game in the second quarter when he aggravated a previous injury to his right thigh. Hipp, who entered the game as the nation's fifth leading rusher, gained 39 yards in 11 carries befure departing Berns scored on a one-yard run in the first quarter to give Nebraska a 9 0 lead and then tallied the Cornhuskers' final touchdown on another one-yard Dean Blevins, halfback Freddie Nixon ran three yards for a touchdown, Uwe Von Schamann kicked field goals of 58, 22 and 19 yards and the Sooners picked up two points on a safety when OSU fumbled a kickoff near the goal-line and then downed the ball inside the end zone. The Sooners had to over- come Cowboy leads twice run with 7:11 left in the game. Billy Todd added field goals of 37, 27 and 42 yards for Nebraska. Missouri scored all 10 of its points in the second quarter to take a 10-9 half-time lead, but it was not enough to prevent the Tigers from dropping their sixth game in nine tries this year. Nebraska, playing in front of representatives from the Tangerine Bowl? upped its record to 7-2. The Cornhuskers capitalized on difficulties by the Missouri punting team to score its nine first quarter points. Ted Harvey returned a Missouri punt 43 yards to the Tiger 28 midway through the quarter to set up Tudd's first field goal. Missouri failed to move the ball in its next possession, and Monte Montgomery shanked a punt, kicking it only six yards to give Nebraska the ball at the ' in their sixth come-from-behind win of the season. Terry Miller, who placed third in the Heisman Tro- phy race last season, paced the Pokes' losing effort, rushing for 120 yards on 20 carries and scoring three touchdowns. It was his 17th consecutive game with more than 100 yards rush- ing. The Cowboys drove 75 Tiger 17. Berns scored his first touchdown four plays later. Missouri used a 74-yard drive to score early in the .second quarter on a 35-yard field goal by Jeff Brockhaus. The Tigers drove 80 yards in their next possession to take the lead on a seven-yard run by Annise Davis. But Todd gave Nebraska the lead for good with his final two field goals in the third quarter, and Herns put the game away with his second touchdown.

Campbell, wheezing throughout the first half because of a sudden illness, played despite the handicap and his 173 yards rushing and three touchdown runs made the difference in the Texas Long-horns' 35-21 victory over Houston. "I was not satisfied with my game, but I was weak. I think I'm getting the flu," said Campbell, whose rushing tolals gave him a good shot at gaining more 'Bama Battles Own Mistakes BATON ROUGE, La. (L'PI) Alabama couldn't give away its Southeastern Conference game against Ixiuisiana State but it appeared the Crimson Tide made a generous offer. Despite surrendering four of five fumbles to LSU, the Tide kept coming back to control the game and dumped the Tigers, 24-3, for their eighth straight win that virtually guaranteed a berth in the Sugar Bowl. "This has been the most times 1 fumbled," said Alabama halfback . Tony Nathan, who lost the ball twice. "I caught the ball wrong." Nathan redeemed himself by scoring two touchdowns on one-yard dives and tossing a 20-yard touchdown pass to split end Keith Pugh. THE ALABAMA defense, rated second in the SEC to Kentucky, stopped LSU at every turn and prevented the Tigers from scoring a touchdown for the first time this year. "I'm particularly proud of the defense of the team," said Alabama Coach Bear Bryant. "We played lietter than we did all year. The best team won." Alabama started slow on offense but held LSU to 47 yards in the first half until it could begin scoring. LSU had gone into the game as the nation's rushing leader with a 32H yanls-per-game average but ended up with a total of 1H6 yards rushing and only 17 yards passing. "They kind of stuffed it to us," said LSU Coach yards in the first series of the game, and Miller scored from two yards out. Later in the same quarter Miller broke loose for a 71-yard touchdown run that put OSU ahead, 14-7. He also scored on a three-yard run early In the third quarter. Peacock's first touchdown came on a 48-yard pass from Lott in the first quarter and his second was a 57-yard run. Von Schamann took a bad snap on a punt attempt early in the third quarter and was tackled at the Sooner five-yard line. Two plays later Cowboy quarterback Harold Bailey, plunged over from the one to tie the score, 21-21, and 15 seconds later Miller scored his third touchdown of the day to climax a six-yard drive in two plays set up by OSU's recovery of a kickoff fumble by Over-street.

' He has 3.SH7 yards and his total against Houston jumped him from 12th to 7th on the all-time NCAA career rushing list. Cougar defenders, who did not face the 220-pound tailback in their 30-0 vie turnover Texas last season, praised him. "He is a hell of a runner and Texas is a great team," said Houston defensive tackle Leonard Mitchell. Linebacker Vincent Greenwood said, "We did a good job of holding Campbell most of the time but Charlie McClendon. "They are just excellent defensive people. They shucked our offensive people and didn't give them much room to get going." Two of the Alabama fumbles were recovered by defensive end John Adams but in both cases the Tigers could not take advantage. "THEY DIDN'T do anything at all on offense we didn't expect. We went over and over it' in practice," Adams said. "They just did it awfully well." Quarterback Steve Ens-minger, who tossed LSU to a comeback 28-21 win over Mississippi the week before, was sacked twice and failed on all seven of his passing attempts. "They had more men rushing than we had blocking," he said. "They were using four men, bringing up the strong safety." Alabama missed a 32-yard field goal in the first period, but came back nine plays later to take a 3-0 lead on a 44-yard kick by Roger Chapman. LSU tied the score with 9:34 left with a 31 -yard field goal by Mike Conway and the game began to look like an old-fashioned SEC defensive battle. But Alabama changed the game midway in the second quarter when it began a 94-yard drive that took almost seven minutes, with Nathan diving over for his first touchdown. EARLY IN the second half, LSU missed a field goal attempt and Alabama's second score was set up when Ensniinger was sacked on fourth down. A pass inteference . call moved Alabama deep into Tiger territory and Nathan dove again for a one-yard touchdown with 24 seconds left in the third quarter. Nathan put the game away with a 20-yard scoring pass to Pugh at the start of the fourth period. "1 couldn't tell where he (Pugh) was. I just threw it and it worked Nathan said. out, Alo 26 70-307 82 17 LSU 7 44166 17 0 3 IS 0 7 41 1 0-0 4-71 First downs Rushes-vards Passing vords Return yards Posses Punls Fumbles-lost Penollies-yords 4-42.3 54 3-35 Alabama LSU Alo FG Chopmon 44 I 7 7-24 J 0 J LSU-FG Conway 31 Alo Nathon I run IChopmankickl Alo Nathan 1 run IChapmonkick) Alo Pugh 20 poss Irom Nathan (Chapman kick) A-65.377 BYU Rolls To Win PROVO, Utah (UPI) -Sophomore Marc Wilson passed for five touchdowns and an NCAA single-game record 571 yards Saturday in powering 13th-ranked Brigham Young to a 38-8 Western Athletic Conferece win over Utah. Wilson nearly missed the record when Coach LaVcll Edwards pulled his quarterback with two minutes to go. Wilson was Just eight yards shy of the 1972 561-yard record of Utah State's Tony Adams. Edwards then gave Wilson his shot at the record book with one minute to play and he completed three straight passes, including an 8-yarder to John VanDerWouden for his fifth TU, when he had to, he came through." Top-ranked Texas remained unbeaten in eight games, but there was added concern about the final three games because of a late-game injury to quarterback Randy McEachern. "I strained my right knee on the last series, but I don't think it is too bad," McEachern said. Campbell's 39-yard gallop for his third touchdown with with 4:26 remaining in the third quarter broke the game open and McEachern ran up the score with a one-yard touchdown run and a 16-yard scoring pass to split end Ronnie Mik-sch. Houston only scared the Longhorns by rolling up 199 Tirst half yards and scoring on Alois Black-well's 44-yard run and two Kenny Hatfield field goals of 2fi and 43 yards. Campbell's scoring runs went for six, two and 39 yards. His 44-yard scamper on a draw play with 1: 38 remaining in the third quarter carried to the one-yard line and McEachern scored on the next play. The Longhorn victory marked the fifth since red-shirt senior McEachern was forced into the lineup by injuries to Texas' top two quarterbacks. McEachern had to be helped from the field in the fourth quarter with an injured knee. He was later seen walking along the sideline with a slight limp. With 40 seconds left in the game Cougars quarterback Delrick Brow n passed two yards to Don Bass for a touchdown. Houston, 4-4 for the season, suffered its third loss in the last four games since learning of a one-year NCAA probation for illegal recruitment of a high school prospect.

Bouncing back from consecutive losses to Notre Dame and California, the Trojans intercepted Benjamin, Stanford's 6-4 Heisman Trophy candidate, four times and forced him to fumble once. White, a nifty 5-11. 187-pounder, caught a 22-yard touchdown pass from Rob Hertel in the second quarter and tallied on runs of 14 and two yards in the third period. Improving their season record to 6-3, the Trojans, the nation's No. 1-ranked team for two weeks this season before losing three of their previous four games, emerged from the one-sided romp as the team to beat in the Pacific-8 race for Pasadena. They finished the day tied for first place in the conference standings with a 4-1 record with Washington and UCLA, the final regular-season opponents. Stanford fell to 4 2 in the Pac-8 standings. L'SC led 214J at halftime and blew the Cardinals out of the game with a three-touchdown third quarter, the final score coming on a brilliant run of 63 yards by backup tailback Dwight Ford with 45 seconds left in the period.
